Just downloaded the Teradata Express 14.10 for VMware Player, I opened the Teradata Studio version 14.10 in the virtual machine. Before I configured a connection profile, I closed the program. Next time I opened Teradata Studio, the splash screen displayed for a minute, then the studio opened for about three seconds then disappeared with out any kind of error.
From what I was able to determine from the Teradata user boards, because I did not configure a connection profile, the program errors & closes.

On the workstation running Teradata Studio, find the directory “.metadata”. In my case, it was located in the workspace-studio directory. I deleted the directory at the commandline using “rm -R .metadata“.
The next time Teradata Studio is started, the .metadata directory is recreated. In my case, I had to go though the tutorial again.
